    Quote from the A+ manual. "You must install P8 and P9 together so that the two black grounds are on each connector are together or you will do damage to the motherboard or power supply."

    Thats correct, they are called burndy connectors and the black leads should be together.

    just to make sure. my motherboard has a series of pins, i plug the P8 and the P9 wires so that the black cables are next to each other?
